SEASIDE, CA (July 17, 2016) -- It is clear that Robby Salomon enjoys the Bayonet Black Horse Amateur, the tournament has been in existence for two years and the event still only has one winner. Salomon began the day at Bayonet Golf Course four off the pace set by 36-hole leader Kevin Velo, but was able to force and win a playoff after finishing 2-under.

Just a week after defending his Northern California Stroke Play title, Salomon combined rounds of 69-75-70 to reach 214. The recent Cal State Monterey Bay graduate, got off to a sluggish start on Sunday with a 2nd hole double bogey before turning things around with birdies on Nos. 6, 7, 15 and the closing hole to get into the playoff.

By reaching the playoff and winning, Salomon was able to overcome a second round 3-over 75 that included six bogeys and a double-bogey.

Kevin Velo, a rising sophomore at San Jose State, allowed Salomon back into the fray by shooting a final round 2-over 74 to drop back to 2-under. Velo started the final round 4-under following rounds of 68-72. The Friday 4-under 68 was the low round of the tournament.
